The Controversy over Gay Marriage

As always we have different prospectives on gays or lesbians getting married. You have the "no way" attitude, the "I don’t care as long as it doesn’t effect me" and of course you have the "yes it should be allowed. So here is my resolution on this controvery and how we all can deal with this and be happy.


Let’s start with the basics first!

  1. You do not choose who you love. It just happens  
  2. You are born the way you are and what you feel is real 
  3. You do not choose to be “straight or gay”. It is who you are. 
  4. Marriage is a union of 2 people that love each other and want to express that to the world. 
  5. People marry for many reasons, most often including one or more of the following: legal, social, emotional, economical, and religious. 
  6. Marriage is a union between two persons, who lived in harmony so absolute with each other, as to be independent of the world outside.  
  7. Merriam Webster dictionary: the state of being united to a person of the opposite sex as husband or wife in a consensual and contractual relationship recognized by law (2) : the state of being united to a person of the same sex in a relationship like that of a traditional marriage b : the mutual relation of married persons : wedlock c: the institution whereby individuals are joined in a marriage
  8. When you love someone you want to have the ties that bind, in this case I am referring to legal ties that bind. When two people of any sexuality join in marriage they are now partners. Partners in all areas. If one is sick the other can be at the hospital with them. They can make decisions for one another when the other one cannot do this for themselves. 
  9. The term marriage merely means to unite as one.

So based on the above: whats the big deal?

Here are the opposing issues: 
  1. Marriage is to be sacred:  
  2. Marriage is for raising children.  
  3. Gay marriages will lead inexorably to polygamy and other alternatives.  
  4. Every public school in the nation will be required to teach this. 
  5. The impact on Social Security if there are millions of new dependents that will be entitled to survivor benefits? 
  6. This will spread throughout the world. 
  7. The Gospel of Jesus Christ will be severely curtailed..

Ok, so I know there are many more opposing issues: But these seem to be the main ones so lets look at these.


Opposing view #1 above: The word Sacred means:set apart for, and dedicated to, some person, place, purpose, sentiment, etc. If two people love each other and want to spend the rest of their lives together…isn’t that sacred..isn’t that be dedicated to?

Opposing view #2 above: I have spent the past 10 years (I am female and not homosexual) helping my sister raise her 3 boys and I must say we did a pretty good job of it. Now my sister was married and where did he go? Most men (not all) don’t raise the children anyways because they are to busy. Where as a gay man is generally very loving and very supportive. If only a male and female can do the job of raising children then we have a bigger problem on our hands than gay marriages!

Opposing view #3 above: What? polygamy and other alternatives have been going on long before the debate of gay marriage! How do the two have anything in common? Go to Utah and bring up that subject.

Opposing view #4 above: Every school will have to teach this…that is not the case and is in fact false. However, schools should teach this and the next generation of “HOMOSEXUALS” will be in these schools! Get real people, maybe if this were taught a lot of the “hate” in this world be reduce. Once people are educated they usually get the point. It is ignorance on a subject that causes problems.

Opposing view #5 above: First off every working American will (well maybe the way the country is going there may not be social security) qualify for SSA. When a loved one dies and there benefits are passed on to their what …they worked for them. It is no different than leaving your spouse the house. And if this is a major issue, well lets take it out of the equation for a moment. The spouse left behind would then get a job or already be on SSA or public assistance anyways. What difference does it make what your sex is on this issue?

Opposing view #6 above: It will spread? What is it a pandemic? Oh crap…the real news…homosexuals live right next door to you, they go to church with you, they go to the supermarket with you…Get the point?

Opposing view #7 above: I saved this one for last as I think this requires some thought. Those of you who believe that gay marriage is wrong because the bible says so….Well let me tell you something! Jesus said for us to love one another, he told us not to judge one another, he told us love our enemies. Don’t preach a section of the bible and then not stand behind the rest. I would have to question then why so many “Christians” who get married and say “for better or for worse until death do us part”, get divorced all the time. Remember Jesus saying worry about the plank in your own eye before telling someone else about the speck in their eye? And above all…each and everyone of us will be judge according to our hearts and that will be an individual thing between God and oneself.
Ok so that in a nutshell
Since the Term Marriage seems to be such an issue with many many people. What if it were called a loving, caring, two person union in a consensual and contractual relationship recognized by law.




By the way the definition for traditional is: old-style, outdated, outmoded, out-of-date, old, old-fashioned.
The reasons to allow gay marriage….all of the above!

How would you feel being “straight” and your spouse gets injured and your not even allowed in the hospital room? You have no say so for their care? You could never walk down the street and hold your spouses hand or give him or her a kiss without being worried you might get jumped. Every time you get together you have to act like your just friends. Just ask yourself this:




Just as a side note: I can prove you are born this way…HOW

What about the many many people born with both male and female parts? Did they choose to be born that way? Who should they marry

Stimulus promises not fulfilled when it comes to jobs

At the six month anniversary of President Barack Obama's "achievement"

...the $787 billion stimulus measure-

it's important to separate economic fact from fiction.
Although Democratic lawmakers were convinced to pass the massive spending bill
"without reading it",
the White House promised the stimulus would provide "an immediate jolt" to the U.S. economy. Thus creating millions of new jobs and keeping unemployment under 8 percent.

None of these promises have materialized.
If the stimulus is working so well, where are all the jobs?

There are 2 million Americans who have lost their jobs, the economy continues to contract and the unemployment rate is at 9.4% and looks like that will increase.
The government reported that mass layoffs are at a record high.

The reason why?
The stimulus is too slow and not focused on jobs. Only 10% of this stimulus money has hit the U.S. economy.
There is no way you can least with a straight face that this is driving the economy to recovery.
Only 1/2 of the stimulus spending will make its way through federal and state bureaucracy by early 2011.
This of course will be long after the economy really needs it and it is just as the "critics" (as we are called) predicted.

Here is a breakdown of some of the spending:
5% is funded for roads and infrastructure.
Stimulus dollars will be wasted on things like buying new public art (rather than helping small businesses survive)
Far too much of the spending has been wasteful.

Everyday the media reports on some outrageous spending:
  • $3 million turtle crossing in Florida
  • $50,000 for a hand puppet project through the National Endowment for the arts.
  • New office furniture for federal executives.
  • In Union, NY the city was given $600,000 for a homeless program. The city doesn't have homeless issues nor a homeless program.
Is this how we want our tax dollars spent?
Borrowing more than a trillion dollars to pay for all this eventually will put a drag on America's recovery, along with increased energy prices from the cap-and-trade scheme and major tax increases on professionals and small businesses included in the health care reform bill.
I didn't say this? I never agreed to this? Did You?


Glenn Beck Has Lost His Right to Freedom of Speech

I guess you cannot have an opinion anymore although the bill of rights states we do. Or better yet, you better keep your opinion to yourself.

The theory is Beck has lost too many sponsors over his “racist” comment regarding President Barack Obama.

Wow, has anyone read any of Barack Obama’s books? have you paid attention to the news and some of the comments he makes? There have been many things Obama has said that I have found to be racist.

Whats next, if you don’t think like President Obama wants you to and you don’t follow him then you are black balled.

The White House spin machine is already in full spin cycle trying to deflect Barack Obama’s latest gaffe!

That was his comments on bowling

like someone in the “special Olympics”.

Or how about the comment made regarding the “white officer”, even though Barack Obama said he did not know the facts he clearly stated, the white police officer “acted stupidly.

When asked about the remark, regarding the bowling “Special Olympics”, the White House said the president did not intend to offend.

It seems there have been a lot of cover ups for what Obama did not INTEND to say or do.

So now Glenn Beck says what he feels and everyone is running to “delete” him. In fact his comment was “he felt” that Obama is racist.

He did not say “he is”, but merely was stating how he felt about Obama.

To quote:
Bill/amendment #1.Congress shall make no law respecting an Establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

Seems to me Glenn Beck was just using his freedom of speech of the position he was in to petition the Government on what he felt was wrong.

And maybe Glenn Beck is a racist himself…but the fact of the matter is….we are all allowed to have and to voice our opinions.

The government has even made comments that Barack Obama’s “brown shirts” are after Glenn Beck. The Obama administration should not be allowed to have this type of control it is a direct offense against our bill of rights amendment #1.

The point: Obama has his opinions, Glenn Beck has his, I have mine, you have yours and so on.
I didn’t realize Glenn Becks word became reality!

Barack Obama also said this was not a “christian” country anymore at one point…did that make it true because he said it. Research some more on this.

Infants' remains found under Texas mobile home

The skeletal remains of two infants were found underneath a rural Texas trailer, police said Monday, in the same area where another set of infant remains was found last year.
Authorities were called about 3:30 p.m. Sunday to the trailer south of Kennedale, about 15 miles southeast of Fort Worth, Texas, in rural Tarrant County.
There is a group of about five mobile homes there, that are leased by the property owner.

One of the mobile homes had recently become vacant, and the owner was cleaning it up .
The owner pulled back the metal "skirt" around the bottom of the mobile home and was "digging around in there," and found a plastic bag.

When the man opened it up, he found a box, and inside the box he found the "bones of a very young infant," . He continued to look, and found another plastic container with more remains inside, of a "similar-aged infant," before calling 911.

In 2008, the same man called police to report that he had found a suitcase in the same area, in an overgrown field a distance away from the mobile homes, while dumping leaves. When he used a knife to cut into the suitcase, a set of infant bones were found.
The medical examiner's office was unable to determine a cause of death because the remains were skeletal, although no bones were broken, he said.
We worked the thing as best we could, without any more to go on than we had," but the investigation stalled, officer in charge Grisham said.

Police have contacted the two people -- a brother and sister -- who recently moved out of the trailer. The two have been cooperative with authorities, and they were interviewed separately, but both told police they had no idea the remains were there,

Authorities and the medical examiner's office remained at the scene Monday, and plan to use cadaver dogs at the site Monday afternoon in an effort to determine whether more remains were present.

"This ground is pretty brushy and overgrown," he said. A county work crew was brought in to carefully cut down the brush to aid the search, he said.
What the Hell is going on in this country?

Auto Industry Braces For Hangover After The 'Clunker' Party

As the U.S. government's popular "Cash for Clunkers" program shut down officially at 8 p.m. Monday, it left behind mounds of paperwork and empty lots at dealerships across the country.

Over the weekend, an onslaught of customers descended on dealerships, hoping to take advantage of the offer, which allowed consumers to trade in their gas guzzlers for a voucher worth up to $4,500 toward a new vehicle.

In back offices, accountants and other dealership workers sat at their computers until the wee hours of Sunday morning, uploading their applications to the government's Web site.

The online system was slow and crashed several times, forcing transportation officials to extend the deadline until noon Tuesday for dealers to submit their paperwork.

Auto Nation, the country's biggest car dealership chain, stopped accepting clunker program trade-ins over the weekend because it was concerned about getting in all of the paperwork on the more than 12,000 deals it did.

The company processed 1,600 sales on Friday night alone, and employees worked in shifts at offices in Dallas throughout the weekend.

"This is the jump-start to a gradual recovery," said Marc Cannon, a spokesman for AutoNation.
Transportation officials said 625,000 transactions, worth $2.58 billion, had been submitted as of Monday morning.

The Obama administration declared the program a success. An estimate issued Monday by the White House Council of Economic Advisers said the program is projected to boost U.S. third-quarter gross domestic product by 0.3 to 0.4 percentage points and create 42,000 jobs by the end of 2009.

Many auto industry analysts and dealers expect sales volumes to fall now that the program is over. They worry that many people who took advantage of the program were merely accelerating purchases they would have made later in the year.

If that's true, the premature sales could hurt automakers, which increased production in the third quarter to replenish clunker-depleted inventories that had already grown low because of factory shutdowns over the summer.

Because there's a lag time between production and getting a vehicle to a dealership, the new vehicles "will hit when there's a lower demand," said Jeff Schuster, executive director of forecasting at the auto industry research firm J.D. Power and associates.

"There might not be as many people to buy because they bought during the clunker program," he said. "And if at the same time there's less of an incentive program from carmakers, you could have fewer people buying. That could stall the recovery we're in."

Jeremy Anwyl, chief executive of, another automotive research group, agreed.
" 'Cash for Clunkers' created a nice little blip," he said.

"We'll look back and say, 'Nice party, but the hangover is awful.' "

H1N1 Swine Flu Estimated to effect 1/2 of USA

Swine flu could infect half the U.S. population this fall and winter, hospitalizing up to 1.8 million people and causing as many as 90,000 deaths -- more than double the number that occur in an average flu season, according to an estimate from a presidential panel released Monday.

The virus could cause symptoms in 60 million to 120 million people, more than half of whom might seek medical attention.

The President's Council of Advisors put together an 86-page report to the White House assessing the government's response to the
first influenza pandemic in 41 years.

Although most of the cases probably would be mild, up to 300,000 people could require intensive care.

"This is going to be fairly serious," said Harold E. Varmus of Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York, "It's going to stress every aspect of our health system."

While the seasonal flu is associated with 30,000 to 40,000 deaths and 200,000 hospitalizations each year, the lack of immunity to the swine flu virus probably will lead to many more people becoming infected, sick -- and possibly to 30,000 to 90,000 deaths.

And while most deaths during a typical flu season occur in the elderly, swine flu is more likely to kill children and young adults.

The outbreak could turn out to be milder, too. The primary purpose of the estimates id to help guide planning for the public.

For example, it was estimated that the outbreak could peak in mid-October.

In addition, recommendations clarifying how antiviral drugs should be used to fight the pandemic.

Swine flu virus, or H1N1, emerged last spring in Mexico and quickly spread to the United States and around the world. Although far less dangerous than initially feared, the virus has sickened children and young adults more frequently than the typical seasonal flu.

"This isn't the flu that we're used to," said Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius.

"The 2009 H1N1 virus will cause a more serious threat this fall. We won't know until we're in the middle of the flu season how serious the threat is, but because it's a new strain, it's likely to infect more people than usual."

The pandemic has caused significant disruptions and economic damage and has contributed to the deaths of more than

A second wave of infection is expected to begin within weeks in the Northern Hemisphere as schools reopen and cooler weather returns.

If you have children going to school and they show any signs of being sick...keep them home. Also make sure you ask your child to watch and see if any other students have flu like symptoms.

Personally I bought masks a while back and during this time I will be wearing one everywhere I go. I have a low immune system and anyone who is ill or has a hard time recovering should wear a mask also.

What you need to know:

How is swine flu different from other flus?
Swine flu, or 2009 H1N1, is a virus that is a chimera -- a mix of a number of human, swine and avian influenza virus genes. Most important, it contains a surface protein, H1, that has not been seen in the human population before, so very few people have any immunity from infection with this virus.

What are the typical symptoms?
The symptoms are very similar to those of seasonal flu: high fever, cough, aches and pains, sneezing and feeling very tired. In some people, such as pregnant women, the disease can progress to a serious form involving shortness of breath and other severe complications.
Who appears to be most at risk for catching it?

Who appears to be most at risk for catching it?

There is little immunity in the population against this particular strain of influenza virus, so everyone will have a greater likelihood of getting infected in the coming flu season. Pregnant women, people with weakened immune systems and people with other chronic diseases seem to be more susceptible to severe cases of H1N1. There have not been as many cases of influenza in people 65 and older as we would have predicted. It's not clear if this is because the virus is spreading differently in the summer or if there is some immunity to it in the over-65 population because of exposure to distantly related strains that circulated decades ago.

Antivirals such as Tamiflu and Relenza can help you recover more quickly from the flu, but these are being recommended only for people with severe cases.

There will be a vaccine available in the fall or winter that should provide protection from this strain of flu.

Has H1N1 mutated and become more or less severe since the spring?
The virus has not changed to become more infectious or cause more severe disease since it emerged in humans in April.

If I had swine flu last spring, do I need to be vaccinated this fall?
If you had a confirmed case of 2009 H1N1, then you most likely have immunity to the virus and would be protected from infection. However, you should still get the vaccine, particularly if you are in one of the high-risk groups, so you can get an even stronger immune response.

What should I do if I think I have H1N1?
Always consult a physician for specific medical advice, but for most people, if you start to feel flulike symptoms (fever, dry cough), simply go home or stay there, rest and take plenty of fluids. There are no specific medical treatments recommended. If the disease progresses to a more severe form (you experience trouble breathing, shortness of breath, chest pains, dizziness or vomiting), immediately contact your physician so you can begin treatment with antivirals and get other medical care.

How do I take care of someone I'm living with who has H1N1?
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has guidelines for what to do if you find yourself caring for someone with the flu: Basically, you should minimize your exposure to the person, make sure you remind the sick person to practice good etiquette for coughing and sneezing (cough or sneeze into a disposable tissue that you get rid of immediately, or into your sleeve) and have everyone in the household wash their hands regularly.

I've seen antibacterial, alcohol-based and other soaps. What should I use?
Any kind of soap will work against influenza viruses, as long as you are sure to wash your hands well. Don't just get them wet with water and walk away. Alcohol-based hand sanitizers work well against influenza if your job doesn't allow you to wash your hands regularly.

Homeless people should have it this good


Can you get it on the first picture or second or third or do you have to wait till the fourth? 5th? 6th? 7th?

New Cook County Correctional Center, Chicago , Illinois

( I guess if I ever break the law, I'd better do it in Illinois !

Homeless people should have it so good!)

Once again the taxpayer gets stung.

It also shows that in most cases the quality of life for prisoners has improved considerably from what you might expect.

And I always thought prison was for punishment.!!!!!

Just in case you ever get these two environments mixed up, this comparison chart should make things a little bit clearer:

You spend most of your time in a 10X10 cell

You spend most of yourtime ina 6X6 cubicle

You get three fully paid for meals a day

You get a break for one meal, and you have to pay for it

For good behavior, you get time off

For good behavior, you get more work

The guard locks and unlocks all the doors for you

You must carry a security card and open all the doors yourself

You can watch TV and play games


You could get fired for watching
TV and playing games

You get your own toilet

You have to share the toilet with
people who pee on the seat

They allow your family and friends to visit

You aren't even supposed
to speak to your family

All expenses are paid by the taxpayers with no work required on your part

You must pay all your expenses to go
to work, and they deduct taxes from
your salary to pay for prisoners

You spend most of your life inside bars wanting to get out

You spend most of your time wanting
to get out and go inside bars

You must deal with sadistic wardens

They are called 'managers'


Barack Hussein Obama II born August 4, 1961 is the 44th and current President of the United Statesthe first African American to hold the office. He served as the junior United States Senator from Illinois from January 2005 until he resigned after to the presidency in November 2008.

Government Ending 'Cash for Clunkers' Program Monday


The Obama administration plans to end the popular $3 billion Cash for Clunkers program on Monday, giving car shoppers a few more days to take advantage of big government incentives.

The Transportation Department said Thursday the government will wind down the program on Monday at 8 p.m. EDT. Car buyers can receive rebates of $3,500 or $4,500 for trading in older vehicles for new, more fuel-efficient models.

Through Thursday, auto dealers have made deals worth $1.9 billion and are on pace to exhaust the program's $3 billion in early September.

The incentives have generated more than 457,000 vehicle sales. Administration officials said they have reviewed nearly 40 percent of the transactions and have already paid out $145 million to dealers.

Administration officials said applications for rebates will not be accepted after 8 p.m. EDT Monday and dealers should not make additional sales without receiving all the necessary paperwork from their customers. Dealers will be able to resubmit rejected applications after the deadline.

President Barack Obama said in an interview Thursday that the program has been "successful beyond anybody's imagination" but dealers were overwhelmed by the response of consumers.

He pledged that dealers "will get their money."

Dealers have complained of delays in getting reimbursed and backlogs of vehicle paperwork getting processed in the program. Dealers have said they face a risk of not being reimbursed

but LaHood has pledged that dealers will get paid for the incentives.

I wonder if they will get paid before their car lots look like the below picture!

The administration has said it has tripled the number of staffers sorting through the dealer paperwork.

Meanwhile, hundreds of local car dealerships are pulling out of the program because of the many delays of getting paid back from the government.

The greater NY automobile dealers association says the dealers cannot afford to offer more rebates while waiting for reimbursement.

Most dealers are worried they won't get paid at all.

The above signs will be seen all over if payments aren't made soon!

"The Federal Government hasn't even told them whether their transaction they just sold is going to be "paid or funded" at all.

Dealers pay the rebates out of pocket, then must wait to be reimbursed by the government. But administrative snags and heavy paperwork have created a backlog of unpaid claims.

Many dealers have waited so long to get reimbursed they don't have the cash to fund any more rebates.

"The program is a great program in the sense that it's creating a lot of floor traffic that a lot of dealers haven't seen in a long time," he said.

"But it's in the hands of this enormous bureaucracy and regulatory agency," he added.

"If they don't get out of their own way, this program is going to be a huge failure."

Obama says he's adding three times the staff to process the claims. Either they planned for failure or don't know how to plan at all.

A lot of claims are being rejected for information that is wrong or missing.

Typical government program make it so difficult that people cant even fill out the paper work properly to get paid.

Is President Barack Obama a racist?

Yes, I said it: Obama is a racist. I know a racist when I hear one. So is his buddy, Henry Louis Gates. Don't let these two Ivy League-educated, erudite, distinguished black men convince you that only whites can be racists. Believe me, these two men are the worst kind of racists: black and elitist.

According to the Oxford English Dictionary, a racist is someone who believes "all members of each racial group possess characteristics or abilities specific to that race, especially to distinguish it as being either superior or inferior to another racial group or racial groups."
When Sgt. Crowley investigated a possible burglary at Prof. Gates' Cambridge home last month, Gates met a white cop at his door and evidently assumed Crowley was a bad cop, a rogue, a racist cop who would treat him differently than any other suspected perp, just because he was black.
That's racism, folks! What did Gates do when faced with a police officer investigating a burglary in his home? Was Gates polite and courteous to the cop? Did he cooperate and step onto the porch out of the darkened home so Crowley could see his face and ID? Did he calmly explain why a passerby saw him breaking in, if, in fact, it was his own house? Did he speak or act like the esteemed scholar and professor his ID claimed him to be?

Nope. He was belligerent, accusatory, uncooperative, irrational and defamatory, throwing racial slurs at the white officer, even insulting the cop's mother (as in, "Yo momma is so...").
If ever a man did NOT act with Harvard professorial dignity and decorum, if ever a black man acted like a thug from the ‘hood, Gates did. Is it any wonder Officer Crowley asked for more ID, one that actually listed that house as his address, or asked for another person to corroborate Gates' identity? I would, wouldn't you?

And when Gates refused, and became so incensed and insulting to the Sergeant who was there to protect his property that a crowd grew around his house, was Crowley supposed to allow this kind of behavior, just because Gates was black? No. He arrested Gates for disorderly conduct, as he was trained to do. Last time I checked, police arrest people regardless of race when they act like crazy people in the presence of peace officers.

So why is President Obama a racist? Because he, like his friend Gates, automatically assumed the white police officer "acted stupidly." BO assumed it was the white officer's fault, because, of course, we all know white cops are racist, right? And later, when he slightly retracted his statement, he still felt the need to say, "It would have been better if cooler heads had prevailed." By now he knew the facts, that his friend Gates had lost his mind and acted like a fool, but he assumed that Sgt. Crowley similarly lost it and "got all up" in Gates' face, because, of course, that's what all white cops do.

But this white cop didn't, because he's not just any cop, he is an expert at managing racial incidents just like this one became, because of Gates' racism. Friends and fellow officers of all races say Sgt. James Crowley is calm and reliable in situations racially hostile situs, because he was hand-picked by a black police commissioner to teach recruits how to avoid racial profiling, and Crowley has apparently been doing a stellar job at it for 5 years.

But Gates and our esteemed president didn't know that, did they?

So, who are the racists in this story? Gates accused a decent, decorated, above-reproach police officer of being a racist rogue cop, just because he was white. What did our esteemed "black" president do? He immediately took Gates' side, because he's a friend and black!
Um, Mr. President, I thought you were going to help erase the racial lines that divide us?
Shame on you for taking sides on something you admitted you knew nothing about, for commenting nationally on a small, local issue well beneath your pay grade, and for showing us all that you are not that different that the racist Gates who believes all white cops are bad cops, just because of their skin color.

Mr. President, you are a racist. Shame on you.


Obama fans the flames of racism and this is a teaching lesson for us. Obama made a terrible joke about Special Olympics and that too was supposed to be a teaching lesson.

Towards the end of his approximately 40-minute appearance, the president talked about how he’s gotten better at bowling and has been practicing in the White House bowling alley.

He bowled a 129, the president said.

“That’s very good, Mr. President,” Leno said sarcastically.

It’s “like the Special Olympics or something,” the president said.

Mr. Obama and the rest of you Kool-Aid drinking apologists, spare us the BS spin of what you did not mean to do or say. It makes no difference what you intended to do, YOU DID IT!!!
People do not intend to be racist when they make certain comments, yet the comments are. You compared your bad bowling to as if you were a Special Olympics athlete. There is no positive message that can be spun. What is even worse Obama, is that this is obviously part of your normal vocabulary as you thought nothing wrong in saying it.

The White House spin machine is already in full spin cycle trying to deflect Barack Obama’s latest gaffe.

When asked about the remark, the White House said the president did not intend to offend.
It seems there have been a lot of cover ups for what Obama did not INTEND to say or do.

“The president made an off-hand remark making fun of his own bowling that was in no way intended to disparage the Special Olympics,” White House deputy press secretary Bill Burton said. “He thinks the Special Olympics is a wonderful program that gives an opportunity for people with disabilities from around the world.”

We were told during the 2008 Presidential campaign that for 20 years when Obama attended the Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago Obama never sat in a pew when Reverend Jeremiah Wright made racists comments or spewed hate from the pulpit against America.
Really? Really? Barack Obama’s quick jump to automatically presume racism and that the Cambridge, MA police department did something wrong in the arrest of Harvard professor Henry Lewis Gates Jr. tells me that maybe he was present and did hear a sermon or two.

Just my thoughts!

I have to agree with the comments that continue to be made by Barack Obama as in the fact that I too have found many of them to be racists remarks!

I Never Agreed to This! I Never said that! Did you?

After Taking In the Clunkers, Car Dealers Report an Extended Wait for the Cash

Cash for Clunkers is killing the car industry.

Car dealers are growing increasingly impatient with the government's slow pace in reimbursing them for accepting trade-ins as part of its popular "Cash for Clunkers" program, even though Transportation Department officials say they are working to address the delays.

The National Automobile Dealers Association estimates that dealers have hundreds -- and in some cases thousands -- of applications pending that are "worth hundreds of thousands or millions of dollars."

In Maryland alone, dealers have put in $36 million in claims under the clunkers program but have been reimbursed for only about 2 percent of the total, said Peter Kitzmiller, president of the 325-member Maryland Automobile Dealers Association.

"It is ludicrous at this point," Kitzmiller said. "We've got deals that are just sitting there waiting to be reviewed. The customer is gone, the car is gone, and you don't have your money."

Under the program, people who scrap their gas guzzlers can get a voucher worth up to $4,500 toward a new, more fuel-efficient vehicle.

Dealers essentially front the money for the cash incentive with the understanding that the government will reimburse them once they file the necessary paperwork online and the deal is approved.

Fitzgerald Automotive, one of the largest Washington area dealerships, says it is owed $2.7 million from the government. Darcars, another large area dealership, says it is owed $5 million after taking in roughly 1,300 vehicles.

To deal with the issue, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said it is tripling the number of workers who are processing claims to 1,100 contract and federal employees. Trade groups are offering Web seminars to help dealers figure out how to properly submit paperwork so they get their money faster.

In the roughly three weeks since the program officially began, 411,624 transactions, worth $1.7 billion, have been submitted, according to government numbers released Tuesday.

Most of the clunkers traded in were trucks and sport-utility vehicles. Toyota Corolla, Honda Civic and the Ford Focus have been the top three new vehicles bought under the program.

To keep up with demand some automakers have said they are increasing their production.
For the first time since filing for bankruptcy, General Motors is hiring back workers to meet higher-than-expected demand for cars and trucks. The company will reinstate 1,350 workers and add overtime for about another 10,000, the result of a broad surge in sales at least partly due to the clunkers program.

The rehires represent only a small portion of the tens of thousands of GM workers who have been laid off in recent years, but the news is a marked turnaround from just months ago when the company was undergoing bankruptcy proceedings.

"We're running much hotter," said Mark LaNeve, GM's vice president of U.S. sales.
Most of the jobs will be added at the company's Lordstown, Ohio plant, where the Chevy Cobalt, a small car, is built, while others will be added in Ontario.

The news from GM follows Ford's announcement last week that it is boosting North American production to meet the increased demand spurred by the clunkers program.

Ford said its third-quarter output would rise by 10,000 vehicles to 495,000, primarily because of increased demand for Escape small utility vehicles and Focus small cars, the two most popular Ford vehicles under the federal incentive program.

The problem here is that the "promised" incentive money is not being produced. What is going to happen is that the lay offs are going to increase if the funding does not come in soon. The car companies will have to claim bankruptcy as they will not be able to pay the employees what is owed to them and then of course with the large surplus of cars they will have just sitting around...well you see the point here.

I said from the beginning that this was a good idea gone really bad. With the national debt being what it and or where will this agreed upon funding come from?

I Never Agreed to This...I never Said this was a good idea...Did You?

Healthcare debate fuels extremism

I want to start this post with a simple statement. Although I do not care for the way Barack Obama is running the USA at this point, I in no way agree with death threats to him or wish him any harm.

The message was clear. The sign carried by a 51-year-old man last week outside a raucous town hall meeting on health care in Hagerstown, Maryland, read "Death to Obama".
Just to emphasise his point, a second message was also scrawled on the cardboard placard. "Death to Obama, Michelle and 2 stupid kids," it stated.

Welcome to the disturbing new face of America right now . Many fear it might end in tragedy.

Obama has been labelled as a threat to democracy and an anti-white racist by senior presenters on the TV channel Fox News. Republicans, seizing on the fierce debate over Obama's plans to reform health care, have called him a socialist who plans "death panels" for the elderly.
Rumours have circulated that Obama was not born in America and that he plans to ban firearms. A recent poll in Virginia showed only 53% of voters believed Obama was born in the US. In neighbouring North Carolina, 54% of voters shared that opinion.

This is becoming a major security issue, prompting fears of an attack on Obama's life or some other incident of domestic terrorism. "This is a very dangerous situation that can spin off 'lone wolf' individuals who decide now is the time to act against people they see as an enemy,"
Federal authorities have launched a program to try to detect any individuals who might be planning attacks similar to those that in recent months have killed a Kansas abortion doctor and a black security guard at Washington DC's Holocaust Museum.

At the same time, the watchdog group the Southern Poverty Law Centre has issued a report that warns of rising numbers of potentially violent groups. The number of hate groups has grown from 602 in 2000 to 926, the organisation found.
Its report quoted one senior federal law enforcement official, Bart McEntire, as saying: "This is the most significant growth we've seen in 10 to 12 years. All it's lacking is a spark."

Many experts believe that spark is no longer missing. Critics say that Republican politicians have let loose a wave of anger tied to the health care debate. Fuelled by racial issues and the economic crisis, it may be impossible to control. "

Iowa Senator Chuck Grassley warned his constituents that Obama's plan could "pull the plug on grandma". Former senator Rick Santorum, who is a possible 2012 presidential hopeful, recently sent out an email warning that Obama was "determined to remake America as a socialist utopia". Oklahoma congressman John Sullivan told supporters in his home state that Obama was creating an "enemies list" of those opposed to health care.

Fox News presenter Glenn Beck, has claimed Obama dislikes white people. "This guy is, I believe, a racist," Beck said. Beck has also discussed allegations that Obama is setting up a network of secret internment camps and joked about poisoning Democratic congresswoman Nancy Pelosi.
Meanwhile Rush Limbaugh, whose weekly radio show is listened to by millions of Americans, has compared the Democrats to the Nazi party. Perhaps taking him at his word, some health care protesters have carried signs featuring swastikas and Obama with a "Hitler" moustache.
(ironically enough from the beginning he has been compared to Hitler...and lets face it his actions and come ons fit the bill)

It is in the so-called "birther" movement that the radical right has gained the most traction. The myth, which has been debunked, holds that Obama was not born in America. Numerous Republican politicians have floated the idea based on the false allegation that Obama cannot provide a birth certificate. The theme has been picked up by the media, including mainstream outlets such as CNN.
(the question is why not just produce the original and let this story end?)

Since Obama took office, the rate of threats against the president has increased 400 per cent from the 3,000 a year or so under President George W. Bush, according to Ronald Kessler, author of In the President’s Secret Service.

Some threats to Mr Obama, whose Secret Service codename is Renegade, have been publicised, while most have been kept secret.

Then based on the codename which means:
1 : a deserter from one faith, cause, or allegiance to another
2 : an individual who rejects lawful or conventional behavior
3 : of or like a renegade; traitorous
disloyal, treacherous, dissident, false, rebellious, recreant

Synonyms:1. traitor, deserter, betrayer, dissenter

I have to wonder why his codename is renegade?

Now as I stated I do not believe anyone should or has the right to take a life. However in this case it is clear that these threats on Obama are not due to him being "African American", but from the outrage he is causing by pissing off Americans.

I recently sent out an email to over 100 people who voted for Obama and ask them if they wish they hadn't and 73 of them said if they could do it again they would not have voted for Obama. This goes to show that these are not just right wingers who are having a problem with Obama's ways.

I guess you should ask yourself the same thing if you voted for him.

I Never......I will leave it at that!

Dead By Mistake....Medical Care problems

I have been following a story relating to the many many "accidental" deaths made by "professional" health care doctors. This story hits home for all of us and needs to be addressed.

First I would like to personally say that I have always thought that when I go see a Dr. or a Surgeon etc, I don't care about their fancy "degrees" on the wall. What I want to see is the transcript of their GRADES. Lets face it...a D is passing. I don't want to see a Dr. who barely got by with C's and D's. How do you know who is really treating you. If their grades were posted on their wall...well then we would be able to make an informed decision on whether this Dr. is worth seeing or not.

No A's and B' work done on me by you.

Now to the story:

We read these horror stories in our local newspaper all the time, but this is really getting out of control.

Experts say that Medical harm kills almost 200,000 a year. This harm refers to mistakes made by Dr's and your care givers. They also state that 98,000 people die from preventable medical errors each year. In fact more Americans die each month of preventable medical injuries than died in the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. (More per month)

In addition to this, a federal Centers for disease control and prevention study concluded that 99,000 patients succumb to hospital acquired infections. Almost all of these deaths are preventable.

Ten years ago a publicized federal report called the death toll shocking and challenged the medical community to cut it in half within 5 years. Instead a national investigation found that the medical community, THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT and most states have overwhelmingly failed to take the effective steps outlined in the report a decade ago.

Due to this a reported 2 Million Americans have died needlessly of preventable medical mistakes. Of course this has been treated with secrecy.

In an analysis that lifted the veil of secrecy showed that in five states...New York, California, Texas, Washington and Connecticut only 20% of the 1434 hospitals are participating in the National safety campaigns.

Now we have the Obama administration wrangling with congress about access to health care, while frustrated patient safety leaders say this "to err is human" attitude needs to be addressed.

Although this has sparked awareness of the problem the revolution of this is doomed by a lack of political leadership and the health care lobby's vested interest in maintaining business as usual.

I guess the business of death by mistake is pretty profitable also.

Statements were made, "We didn't have any government efforts."

In a Seattle hospital a patient died after an antiseptic was injected into her bloodstream instead of the dye that was to be used. The problem, the two containers were both filled with clear liquid and not marked.

Deaths from medical injuries happen behind the doors of a hospital room. Unlike a national tragedy that takes hundreds of lives in an instant, these deaths are singular and often secret.

The report stated that Doctors fudge death certificates, leaving out information that would point to medical error as a prime or contributing cause of death.

Why?: Doctors aren't given enough motivation to report medical errors, and because of liability, "it would cause them problems down the road, so that there is a disincentive to report it."

Doesn't that seem illegal?

The OBAMA Administration does not support a nation wide mandatory reporting system. According to Nancy Ann DeParle (Obama's health advisor), "the best thing to do is to create the incentives and the knowledge around best practices to prevent the errors".

What...A Doctor needs and incentive to do his job right...what should we do..give them even more money?


Under federal regulations, medical practitioners can be fined $10,000 for publicly revealing information about their errors. (does that make sense to anyone else?)

The federal government (Obama's administration) will not have involvement with this.

"Richard Flagg drowned in his own blood.

Surgeons at Meadowland Hospital in NJ accidentally removed Flagg's healthy lung, leaving behind a tumor in the diseased lung. The tumor bled and made him cough. Flagg survived three years, attached to oxygen until the tumor ruptured and he drowned in his blood.

Stanley Stinnett choked on his own vomit".

Stinnet entered the hospital and didn't have much choice about his care. They did nothing for him but fill him with medication to let him die peacefully. The problem: There was nothing wrong with him except for 4 fractured ribs. Rather than finding this out they pumped him with drugs..he choked and started to vomit and died from complications of the drugs administered to him.

A women went in for a routine hysterectomy which resulted in an infection so bad that she had to have her left leg amputated just to save her life. Her lawyer said that bacteria seeped in during surgery, and it took too long for the hospital to take action on her dropping white blood cell counts. Even though it was staring them in the face.

Another women 72 years old, wasn't feel well and went to the hospital. The X-ray was taken and she was told she had bronchitis. She was given meds told to go home and rest and let the meds take it course. She went home and died in her bed that day. The coroners office said she had pneumonia, not bronchitis and that one of her lungs was soaked with fluid.

This of course goes on and on.

Does anyone else want a few things done about this?

Why doesn't Obama's administration address this?

Why doesn't Obama think this is a problem?

Why does Obama think we should give incentives for Doctors to tell the truth?

Clunker Program is a Clunker!

Cash For Clunkers program

fully loaded with debt!

The cash for clunkers program has given taxpayers a valuable lesson...

The lesson can be taken two ways.

1. How to get our county in more debt

2. Or how to put ourselves in more debt

Either way we lose.

I recently read of 5 different mistakes that were made with this incentive program and decided to share this here.

  1. Taking a good idea and making it bad: The government should encourage good behavior and we all should work at making this country better. However the clunker program should have had a cap of $1000 or maybe even $2000 per buyer. Rather the offer was up to $4500 per buyer and the market force was distorted.

  2. An inability to simply say NO: The program quickly burned through the first billion that was set aside and then rather they saying Yeah, congress acted as if they were in Vegas and shoveled out another $2 billion into the pile. Remember they are playing with our money.

  3. This was focused on the short term and not the long term: Everyone ran out and cashed in their old car for a new one...sales skyrocketed for auto makers. Now what about the 4th quarter? Most buyers have already bought what they wanted and we don't buy cars every month...its not like bread, milk or eggs. The car dealers are now going to be sitting on a lot of inventory as sales plummet.

    Ironically this was designed to boost American Auto makers and Ford Focus did lead the pack in sales. Directly following Ford came Toyota corolla, Honda Civic and Toyota Prius and Camry all FOREIGN models. I wonder if Japan will send us a thank you?

  4. Taking credit for what is going to happen anyways! Lets face it...old cars are junked anyways as they quit working. The cars that qualify for this are old smoking burnt out clunkers that will be off the road anyways.

  5. Ignoring the deficit: While everyone was slapping each other on the back and praising what a good idea this is they seem to have forgotten the key point: Our government is not funding this we are...and since they forked out the now $3 billion dollars and this money is borrowed from our future...thus adding to the enormous debt we have already racked up.

With the above mistakes, people losing their jobs and becoming homeless...I guess those new car owners can live in their cars...that is until the dealership comes to repo for it for lack of monthly payment.

Many sales under the clunkers incentive appear to be deferred purchases from buyers who otherwise would have bought a new car before the program started. They just held out to receive the extra money. I guess you and I can pay for someone else to have a new car...No wait that will end of being the burden of our children and their children.

A Real Health Plan Reform

According to the Obama administration and his ideas for "health care for all", most Americans are going to go broke with this idea.

Obama's plan is to make insurance a requirement that all Americans will have to carry and of course pay for. Lets look at this for a moment.

1. If "all" Americans could afford health care they would cover themselves and their families.

2. If all businesses could afford to pay for health care for their employees most would do so.

Now as stated, according to Obama's plan it will be mandatory for all businesses (even the small ones) and all individuals and families to have health care. The problem is...for an individual it will cost approximately $90-120 a month. I for myself cannot afford to pay this out. As it is I am required by law to carry car insurance and that in itself kills me.

Small businesses barely stay afloat as it is ...otherwise they would not be "small". To require a small business to dip into the small amount of profit they generate to cover the cost of health care for their employees will break them.

So the question is ...Why is it that most people do not have health care? Of course we know it is due to the money. But what if we put a cap on what insurance companies could charge? What if we put a cap on what the pharmaceutical companies could charge? How about a cap on what Dr.s can charge?

An example: You go to doctor "A" for a yearly check up. Dr. A charges $90 for the visit and then an additional $30.00 for the exact reason you were seen. (I have been a medical biller and know what I am talking about). Now you go to Dr. "B" for the same yearly check up and Dr. B charges $190 for the visit and then an additional $75 for the reason for the visit.

Anyone else see a problem here?

Now while seeing Dr. A you wait for 1 hour to be seen, but when the Dr. does see you, he or she spends quality time with you and listens. While Dr. B you wait also (AS ALL DOCTORS MASSIVELY OVER BOOK) yet Dr. B comes into the room and is out of the room in approx. 5 minutes.

You know what I am talking about!

Then every Doctor wants to send you for lab work and yet when you tell them you just had this done you are told.."yes but not by me". As if what they will do will be any different. In fact I just had this done to me. The Doctor told me his lab work is more inclusive and therefor needed to be done. Ironically I was sent to the same place "Quest Diagnostic".

The reason: to get paid more.

Then there are the numerous "prescriptions" you need to purchase. Here is how that works. In a Doctors office, "drug reps" come by all the time and "smooze" the Doctor with food and treats. The Doctor is then given a percentage for each "script" he or she writes with that particular drug. Thus the Doctor makes money by giving you drugs. The drug prices then go up because once again someone else has to be paid.

Example: The drug Lipitor cost about $5.00 to make per person per month. However, to buy Lipitor costs about $270.00 per month per person? To many "greedy" hands in the mix. The drug company sells at a higher price, the drug reps get a cut, the Doctors get a cut, the pharmacy gets a cut and everyone who handles this along the way gets a cut.

Who gets screwed here...we do.
Why do you need a "drug rep"? Isn't that like pushing drugs? Which I believe is illegal...but not for these drugs. Why does the Doctor get paid to write out the scripts to people who really need this? And better yet why does the Doctor get paid to write out scripts to those who don't really need it. Why do the pharmacist need to get paid $50.00 and hour?

Based on the above what really is going to change with Obama's plan? Not only will I have to pay the above fees anyways but I will have to cover the required plan also.
And then you know full well that Doctor's fees will continue to rise, the pharmacist will get paid more, the drugs reps will push more drugs and still there will be no end. And in the mean time the independent insurance carriers will continue to jack up their prices.

So why not put a stop to this jacked up inflation? What if the Doctor could not charge outrageous fees? What if the Doctor had to treat you with respect and not just as a dollar sign? (ever go see a Doctor when you only had medicaid? which by the way is a state/government run program) I can tell you first hand, number one good luck finding a Doctor who will take this and if you can ...good luck getting good care!

What if the insurance companies were across the board...meaning why do you pay $700 plus if you live in Texas and yet from the same insurance company with the same policy in New Mexico you only paid $187.

Once again we need to put a cap on things.

Why couldn't we get a script from the Doctor and get our prescriptions filled directly from the manufacturer. We do that all the time with everything else...wholesale product direct from the maker. Cut out all the middle men and we would be ok.

If you saw a Doctor once or twice a year and they only charged $90 people could afford to cover their own expenses. If every Doctor did not have to repeat the same tests over and over again...

You see where I am going with this. Now with Obama's plan once again those of us who cannot afford this will be screwed and in the mean time the Doctors, Pharmaceutical companies, Pharmacies, Insurance companies and drug reps will continue to raise prices.

My proposal for a real health plan reform is to CAP this madness and stop letting the "big wigs" rip us off. All insurance should cost the same.

Yes I know you are saying...but some people have lots of health care issue and it costs a lot of money to take care of them. But my question to you would be this...
If there were caps on the amount of money Doctors and hospitals could charge...would it really cost that much? Why is it that a CAT SCAN cost 1000's of dollars? Why is it that when you are in the hospital and ask for an Excedrin they charge you $8.00 a piece? For $8.00 you can buy your own huge bottle of Excedrin. Why is it that a bandage in the emergency room costs you $800.00

Lets get real here. Again think of who is making the money. And think of who is paying out the money.

It used to be Doctors cared about their patients, now it is pretty much a money game. I recently was sent to a surgeon who found that I have a mass by my belly button on the inside. When I asked what he was going to do about this he told me " I am going to send you to so and so and let them deal with it". I spent 3 months seeing this surgeon just to be brushed off? Only a month after this, this same Doctor was in the paper as he turned his gastrointestinal practice over to gastric bypass totally.

Makes sense now...why do a procedure to help me at only a few thousands dollars when you can see Joe Blow and charge $50,000?

Again as always I ask:

Did you Agree to this? Did you say this? Did you vote for this?
I never said that! Did you?
